Alcee Hastings (D-FL) has filed charges alleging that the congressman subjected her to "unwelcome sexual advances" over a two year period while he chaired the U.S. Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, also know as the Helsinki Commission.

The lawsuit was filed by the conservative group Judicial Watch on behalf of the plaintiff Winsome Packer. Hastings denies the charges.
